On a wintery white day, a small boy and a red
sled step out for an adventure. Slipping through
the snowy woods, their imagined journey takes
place against real black-and-white photos of Eagle
River, Alaska. Told entirely in haiku, this gentle book
evokes both joy and calm. The black, red, and white
color scheme is perfect for very young children,
but readers of all ages will find the lyrical tone and
captivating pictures a delightful invitation to explore
the forest again and again.
Christine Johnson’s prose is brief and unobtrusive, perfectly accompanying Gary Johnson’s photography, wherein the combination of snow and overcast skies all but washes out other surroundings, rendering the boy’s journey an adventure into the deep unknown.
